The second Search Ensembles album sees the return of Cédric
Peyronnet (Toy Bizarre, Kaon / Ingeos, Sechres Mound,), Cyril
Herry (Ninth Desert, Sechres Mound), Phil Legard (Xenis Emputae
Travelling Band, Hawthonn), Michael Northam, Alan Courtis (Anla
Courtis, Reynols), Jani Hirvonen (Uton), Slavek Kwi (Artificial
Memory Trace),  Jon Tulchin and Dale Lloyd (and/OAR, Seattle
Phonographers Union, Lucid), plus first time involvement from Eric
Lanzillotta (Eye Music, Ri Be Xibalba, Anomalous Records), Mark
Reynolds and Mike Hallenbeck (Archive, Junior Birdman Audio).

Whereas the first album mostly presented unrefined aural
snapshots of elusive and impenetrable civilizations and
phenomena, the second album continues along similar lines with
longer pieces while also presenting an increased utilization of
electronic instruments and processes. The title is partially in
reference to what were initially two different albums gradually
becoming combined into one after a long process of being
reworked and revised into one integrated whole. Furthermore,
the title points toward a mental state of foretelling and
recollection which in turn illustrates the idea that everything really
exists in the eternal present (on an infinite number of time lines)
rather than on one locked linear time line. Many indigenous
people around the world have traditionally perceived life this way.

It should also be noted that this final version of "Prescient /
Legend" is partially different than the version offered during the
and/OAR Kickstarter campaign last year. Some pieces have either
been re-worked, replaced and/or re-organized into a new and
improved sonic experience.
